Is it a secret?
Thousands of cars and people pass this wonderland, hidden from the main road by bushland, is the Hemmant Quarry Reserve on Wynnum Road. The best access if via Foley Road, but there is a modest entry point on "The Mad Mile" but one does need to know the area first. There is a short scruffy path through the bushland to this amazing place. The old quarry is filled with water, which in turn is covered with waterlilly and weed. There is an interesting walking path around the park through the bushland, and areas for picnicking. Few people use it - but it is an amazing bush wonderland.
